LOCAL SPORTS – “ATHLETE OF THE WEEK”
(UNDATED) – Our KSEN/K96—Bozeman Trophy Athletes of the week had big performances in big games last week. Female athlete of the week honors go to 5'8" sophomore Brittany Brusven who put up big numbers in teh key volleyball match of the week in the 1B. Both teams were undefeated in conference play coming into the match, and while Shelby's overall team play was a key in their 3/2 victory, Brusven's numbers were undeniable. Thirteen kills topped all players, but she also had ten digs, ten assists, two aces and five blocks. While Brusven is officially listed as setter she plays as strong as anyone at the net and int he back row, as the numbers show. Shelby head coach Ron Buck said it was definitely one of the best overall matches he has sen as the head coach. Brusven also added four kills, nine digs, three aces and a team leading sixteen assista in a 3 game sweep over Browning. Buck called the win over Choteau... undoubtedly a huge victory that puts the Coyotes atop the conference with a 4/0 mark. He says compared to the start of the season, the biggest improvement has been how the team's playing together after replacing fours seniors from a year ago.
